Report Back from the Front Lines of Boston Common
boston_antifa_03.jpgIn the time after Charlottesville, we are a movement in mourning.

When we learned that far-Right groups (including some present at Charlottesville) were set to descend on the Boston Common in the name of “free speech,” we formed plans to shut it down. As the number of counter-protesters intending to combat the event grew, a multiracial antifascist crew was assembled for the purpose of blocking fascist access to the event and defending our neighbors and community members, if needed.

Boston Rallies Against the far-Right: The Future of Anti-Fascism?
blackrose01.jpgDespite the efforts of the fascists and white supremacists to rebrand themselves after their attacks in Charlottesville, 40,000 counter-protesters turned out in Boston on Saturday to oppose their so called “free speech rally” in the Boston Common. The counter-protesters outnumbered the fascists about 1,000 to 1, a clear improvement since the previous such event in Boston on May 13, when similar forces were able to take to the streets without significant numbers in opposition.

Report Back From Boston: Antifascists Win August 19th
boston_antifascist_rally_06.jpgIn the wake of the right-wing terrorist attack in Charlottesville, Boston experienced widespread sympathy and support for antifascism on a scale never before seen in a city with an ugly reputation for racism. Exactly a week after the events in Virginia, the Alt-Right organizer of the “Boston Free Speech Rally” planned to move forward with holding the event which would provide a platform for controversial figures of the Alt-Right (Based Stickman, Joe Biggs, Augustus Invictus) and had the support of fascist and KKK groups who planned to attend.

boston_common_counterprotest1.jpgAugust 19, 2017 - A handful of alt-right filth invaded Boston Common today for a "free speech" rally, but were driven out of the city by 40,000 counter-protesters. This in stark contrast to the previous such event in May in which antifascists were isolated and outnumbered by white supremacists.

Most of the crowds have dispersed after the controversial "Free Speech Rally" disbanded before it ever really began, but some lingering crowds continue to clash with police near Boston Common.
